second goal of the year in the 67th minute but her h

CHASKA, Minn. Cheap Avalanche Jerseys Authentic . -- Phil Mickelson came to Minnesota this week at the center of the Ryder Cup storm, having been the most vocal of the American players in lobbying for change following three straight losses to Europe.His seat only got hotter after he criticized former Ryder Cup captain Hal Sutton for the way he paired Mickelson with Tiger Woods at Oakland Hills in 2004. So when he stepped to the first tee on Friday morning at Hazeltine, Lefty knew he had to deliver.Given the buildup over the last couple years, the criticism, the comments, what have you, the pressure was certainly as great, or greater, than Ive ever felt, Mickelson said. I could have copped out and asked to sit. That would have been a total weak move, and I wanted to get out there. Put me out there. I enjoy that pressure.After a shaky start Friday morning, Mickelson found his form on the back nine and partnered with Rickie Fowler for a 1-up victory over Rory McIlroy and Andy Sullivan, part of a clean sweep of the morning foursomes by the Americans. His front nine was marred by a tee shot that landed out of bounds on No. 6 that dropped them to 2 down. But a superb wedge on No. 16 put Fowler in position for a birdie putt that squared the match, and Fowlers tee shot on 17 helped them reclaim the lead for good.Certainly I played tight. This guy loosened me up, Mickelson said, nodding toward Fowler, who won a Ryder Cup match for the first time. Thats why I wanted him as my partner. He knows what to say and when to say it. He got some of my best golf out there in the end.Few have more riding on this weekend than Mickelson, who raised eyebrows with a pointed critique of captain Tom Watsons strategy after the Americans were rolled by Europe at Gleneagles in Scotland two years ago. Watson was sitting at the table with Mickelson while he railed at all that went wrong -- in Scotland and for much of the last two decades -- for the Americans in Ryder Cup play.Mickelson also had to apologize Thursday after offering up unprompted a stinging criticism of Sutton by saying the 2004 captain set up Woods and Mickelson to fail by giving them just two days notice that the two would be playing together.Mickelson pushed for the creation of the much talked about Ryder Cup task force, a group including Tiger Woods, captain Davis Love III and Tom Lehman that was dedicated to identifying the problems and giving the players a bigger say in the process.The task force drew snickers from the Europeans, who are 8-2 in the last 10 Ryder Cups and going for an unprecedented fourth straight victory. Lee Westwood didnt pass up a chance to take one more shot on the eve of play.You form a task force and it doesnt go right this week, where do you go from there? Westwood said. Youve done pretty much all you can do.So well see how that goes.It wasnt easy for Mickelson and Fowler, but it worked. They were 2 down after six and again after 14 before winning three of the last four holes to take the tightest match of the morning.The way we stepped up again on the closing of the back nine just like we did on the front nine, hitting some shots that we needed to, it was a lot of fun, Fowler said.Love gave the pair the afternoon off, and they were left to watch as Europe charged back into the fray.Mickelson is the elder statesman on the U.S. team, playing in his 11th Ryder Cup. He will be back on the course with Fowler for foursomes on Saturday morning, facing McIlroy and Thomas Pieters.If Mickelson was kept out of the action for a second straight round, Love may have heard about it.I think we all kind of sensed and had a good feeling heading into today that the morning was going to go well, Mickelson said. We didnt know it would THAT well, but we knew were going to have a good morning. And gosh, the guys just played some incredible golf. Cheap Adidas Avalanche Jerseys . And when it opened, every player was at his stall. Thats a sure sign that a team is in a slump and is searching for answers. "Its embarrassing to be at home and play the way we did," said defenceman Josh Gorges. Cheap Colorado Avalanche Jerseys .Y. - Jerome Samson scored once in regulation and again in the shootout as the St. .C. -- Chris Thorburn thinks one of the reasons the Winnipeg Jets have been successful under new coach Paul Maurice is that theyre playing together as a team. KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Goals from Michele Christy and Mary Alice Vignola along with a strong defensive performance paved the way for a 2-0 shutout victory for Tennessee over Missouri on Thursday night at Regal Soccer Stadium.The Big Orange (5-4, 1-1 SEC) surrendered just three shots on goal to a high-scoring Tigers team that entered the night tied for fourth in the SEC with 18 goals this season. Head coach Brian Pensky decided to move Danielle Marcano and Maya Neal to the back line and it paid major dividends for the Volunteers.Tennessees back four of Marcano, Neal, Kathryn Culhane and Emily Morrow played the entire match and stifled the Mizzou attack throughout the night while helping the Vols record their second straight shutout and fourth overall this season.The Orange and White jumped out a 1-0 lead in the 32nd minute when Christy scored off a cross from Hannah Wilkinson. The Loveland, Ohio native one-timed Wilkinsons pass into the lower right corner of the net from the center of the box for her first goal of the year.UT generated a couple of other quality chances in the opening 45 minutes but was unable to add to its lead and went into the break with a one-goal cushion as well as an 8-5 shot advantage.Anna Bialczak nearly scored her second goal of the year in the 67th minute but her half-volley attempt from just outsside the six-yard box rang off the crossbar.

It didnt take long for Bialczak to get on the scoresheet however, as moments later she whipped a cross into the box from the left flank that was partially deflected by Wilkinson and ended up on the foot of a wide-open Vignola at the back post, who easily slotted it home for her second goal in as many games. Bialczak picked up her second assist of the year on the goal, which gave the Vols a 2-0 lead with just under 23 minutes to play in the game.The defense took over from there as the Tigers (5-3, 1-1 SEC) recorded only three shots for the remainder of the contest. Goalkeepers Shae Yanez and Jamie Simmons combined for the shutout for UT, each playing a half. Wilkinsons pair of assists on the night moved her into a tie for first on the team with 10 points and also moved her within two points of cracking Tennessees top-10 career scoring list.With the win, the Big Orange recorded back-to-back victories for the first time this season, picked up their first SEC win and also improved to 3-0 all-time against Missouri at home. UT will now hit the road for a pair of tough SEC matches next week at Georgia (Sept. 22) and at No. 4 Florida (Sunday).
